Awesome to hear! Thanks.I couldn't care if they trippled the price. Opti Coat is an amazing sealant. It's been on my wife's car for a little over 9 months and it still sheets off water like day one. I was her car every week, sometimes twice and it is still as durable as the first wash. I have it on her wheels as well and just a quick rinse from the hose is all that's needed to clean them. The surface is so hydrophobic that soap barley clings to the surface. It's a great sealant.
I was able to apply around 5 layers on her car with the single syringe. I did a layer after each wash for about 5 weeks. I'd say you could get 3 layers on the Tundra with the 10 cc syringe.
This thread is information overload! So here's my story: bought my black 2014 sr5 6 months ago. Paid for the dealers paint protection and sealant up front ($600), but because it was late on a Sunday I didn't have it done. Now I've never made it back to get it done. After reading this thread I'm thinking maybe I should just get my money back and do it myself. I've been waxing my cars since I was young, but I'm nowhere near a profesisonal. I usually just use mcguiars or mothers stuff from autozone. My truck doesn't have any major issues, just 6 months of normal use. What would you guys recommend to get this thing looking good, and lasting. I'm a little nervous about using some of these sealers guys are talking about since I've never done it. Thanks for any and all advise!
Yeah, such a great combo.Once you use the FG400 and Surbuff youll get more out.
Sounds awesome. I used to fly fish Pompano when I lived in your state. I can't wait to get back down there.Yeah, such a great combo.
Off topic, but we're on vacation in Yosemite this week, and I got my first Rainbow's and Brownies on fly today. Had to learn a few new techniques I've never used before, but it was amazing. Rainbows on 4wt's are fun!
50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and di water spray and wipe down before the powerlock will get all the polish off in prep for the pl.Hey Jumbo, I sent you a pm but figured I'd ask here as well. I just nano'd the truck, went over it with FG400 and then SF4000. I wiped it all down with a quality micro before applying a coat of Powerlock. Should I be wiping it down with detail spray before the Powerlock? I just felt like there was still some polish residue that wouldn't come off no matter how many times I wiped it down.
I also meant to ask about pads. I used a white lake country pad for both the FG400 and SF4000. I was thinking about getting either a green or gray pad for the SF4000...thoughts?
